When I travel, I like to find unique experience and this was perfect! I was running really late, and the staff was very understanding and made sure I got caught up on everything I missed. Tuzin is amazing at her craft, and it was an honor learning from such an incredible artist. If you have the opportunity to take this class, please do! You won't regret it!

I felt like a kindergarten kid making Ebru...including the seriousness a kid takes when he/she is playing. Had so much fun and learned a lot in a very well thought, condensed and executed workshop. Breathtaking view at the rooftop with amazing company and further reflections (with a Turkish Coffee) about what we achieved at the Atelier. One of a kind experience with, if not THE, one of the few fiercest guardians of centuries of tradition and art. Highly recommended if you are in Istanbul even for a day or two.
